People across America are beginning to feel and understand the benefits of Eastern Medicine. Practices such as yoga and meditation are no longer looked at as activities for "tree huggers", people with a certain physique or people who are flexible. Western science is now acknowledging the healing benefits of Eastern Medical practices.
Western medicine continues to research and provide data that proves that the application of yoga and meditation can improve the the overall health and well-being of people who suffer from mental and chronic illness. An increase number of doctors, specialists, substance use counselors and therapist have observed improvements made by their clients whose care plan included yoga and meditation as part of their treatment plan.
Restorative and Therapeutic yoga and meditation are perfect healing modalities for those that suffer from co-occurring disorders. Specifically, Restorative and Therapeutic yoga are two practices that help to initiate the body's relaxation response. As a certified Restorative Therapeutic Yoga Instructor, Kaii Marie has worked with many individuals that suffered from depression, anxiety, substance use disorders and chronic pain. When Kaii Marie guided them through a Restorative and Therapeutic yoga session they were able to initiated their body's natural relaxation response and move from a a state of fight-or-flight to pre-stress levels.
What is the relaxation response? Pioneered by Dr. Herbert Benson, Director Emeritus of the Benson-Henry Institute (BHI), and Mind Body Medicine Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, the Relaxation Response is defined as your personal ability to encourage your body to release chemicals and brain signals that make your muscles and organs slow down and increase flow to the brain. Thereby, moving the body from a state of tension and stress to a state of calmness and reduced anxiety.
